Post-It Notes 11

A society that accepts others, even though they are different, is a change in perspective from wanting to “fix” someone so they can be more “normal.”

“I’ve been pushing for society to be accepting my whole life. But it has actually been easier to re-write the genetic code, than to become accepting.”

“We don’t want to be cured.”

Monique Botha

“I wonder what would have happened to great geniuses in the past if they had been labeled with a disability… the world needs the Asperger’s people.”

The Dana Foundation

What a Loser was Albert Einstein?

    Albert Einstein today as a child would on drugs diagnosed with ADHD or Autism!

    He didn’t talk until 4.
    His grandmother called him ‘thick’ or not very smart.
    Repeated words and sentences over and over until he was 7.
    Maybe had a form of autism.
    Didn’t learn to read until 9 and didn’t like school.
    He was disorganized, forgot things, his lectures were hard to follow – the classical ‘absent-minded’ professor.
    He attended a Catholic elementary school in Munich until he was 12.
    Dropped out of high school at 16.
    Failed the entrance exam the first time he applied for college!
    What a loser by today’s standards!
